to vote for? these are telling me that the tactics that president obama is using, talking about diners, bayonets and big birds, they're rubbing people the wrong way. in part because they want to focus on jobs in the economy, which is this big, darker issue that the country is facing right now. it's worrying people a lot. and so, the idea that he can talk about things like the binders comment, which is really just a play off a comment that mitt romney made during the presidential debate, where he talks about his desire to hire a lot of women. and it's not helping him. i think that's reflected in the poll numbers because you're seeing right now romney is tied, or seems to have a kind of momentum moving into the time week. that's just what pollsters are saying. i think democrats feel that this will help particularly with women voters, because they make up the majority, and if they can kind of put forward this argument that mitt romney wants to take away somethings that are very important to them, then they can get the edge amongst that party leck rate. which in a very close election can b

general. when it comes to robocalls, indiana as another unique experience. we have banned the use of auto- dialers since 1988 recognizing the growing opportunities for scams. we have even banned the political calls. that has engaged a number of legal challenges, as you might have guessed. it has been successful up through the courts and the supreme court of india and that successfully arguing that the rights to privacy trump a political free speech to blast out tens of thousands of calls to hoosiers. it is subject to a federal case we want at the district court that is now in the seventh circuit court of appeals. i think there is opportunities there that indiana and other states have shown to have stricter do not call and no boat rolled -- and no robocalling options. some of the current work will again be subject to additional challenges and we look forward to many more days in court.

a treaty of friendship and cooperation. by 1974, as egypt began to move into the u.s. orbit, syria emerged as the no. 1 ally. not to say there are no problems between the two sides. the syrian intervention in lebanon clearly displeased moscow as did its agreement to security council to hundred 42. it's one of the few states that supported the soviet invasion of afghanistan in 1979 and was richly rewarded with military aid as a result. that continued until the advent of gorbachev in 1985 to turn off the tap of military aid. the chill in the relationship continued until 2005 when a combination of increasing syrian isolation due to policies in lebanon and a much more aggressive russian foreign policy under vladimir putin established a close russian- syrian relationship we see today. let's look at the policies of vladimir putin in his second term. i see is reacting to be setbacks like the school fiasco, the orange revolution in the ukraine, and the increasing vulnerability of the u.s. in the middle east because of the invasion of iraq which -- and because of the revival in the taliban in afgha

orion budget and some other radical proposals, instead of moving us forward on jobs, it would take us down a sharp right turn back into the ditch. i think we can prepare it -- repair those injustices. >> i do not want to get bogged down in numbers, but when you talk about uranium enrichment, things can provoke anxiety in terms of what iran either is or is not doing. you need to enrich uranium between 3%-5% for the purposes of nuclear power. they have a knowledge -- acknowledged to the u.n. uranium enrichment upwards of 20% and they now claim it is for medical research. the standard for web and eyes that uranium is enriched up to 85% -- for enriched uranium is up to 85%. there are some who say that you can make a more crude bomb with enriched uranium at 20%. the image that comes to me as a bunch of uranium in a truck parked somewhere at a busy intersection in tel aviv or jerusalem. what does it mean that iran already has uranium enriched to a level of 20% that could be used for an inefficient bomb? what does this say about the sufficiency of the sanctions regime the u.s. has in place a

and the of the country and now have the largest budget surplus we have ever had. it will make a possible for us to strengthen our budget reserves and i believe we can cut taxes for every resident. use every paper things in indiana. when you are speaker of the house, for five of the six years, indiana ran deficits. came in, indiaaniels was $700 million in debt and a deficit of $700 million. i would like to know, from my colleagues on stage, how we will mature and preserve the fiscal integrity of indiana. >> if you spent the last 12 years in india and not congress you would know that our budget needs to be balanced. i have a balanced bipartisan a balanced budget. and the things you talked about were supported by david long, and lieutenant governor. find laughable that united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice but five times congressman. you voted and the results in increased our deficit by 200 billion, billion with a b dollars. >> find a key house, senate and governor's races on the c-span, c-span radio and c- span.org/campaign 2012.

. afterwards we will open the phone lines to get your reaction. tonight a debate for a u.s. senate seat live at 8:00 eastern in virginia, to a bill former governors vying for the job. tim kaine faces george allen. then a debate between candidates for u.s. senate in montana. jon tester is battling republican congressman dennis rehberg. we will have that for you live on c-span. >> campaign 2012's debate hub website is the only place you will see our live coverage of behind-the-scenes sights and sounds before and after the debates. it has each debate question available as a separate topic. you can read political suites from reporters and others at c- span.org/debates/ >> c-span gives a great inside look into what happening in washington. whenever that happens, you are always surprised at what comes back to you and it kind of changes your view. it's different than regular media, because it's very effective and shows a lot of what is real and what's going on. i watched hearings and when the senate and house vote on different bills, we watch from the office. and when the supreme court has hearings
in open session is entirely on classified. >> mr. chairman, i totally object to the use of that photo. the gentleman will state his reasons. >> i believe it to be classified information that should be not -- should not be disseminated in a public forum such as we have here today. >> breaking member, i was just wondering -- these are people from the state -- ranking member, these are people from the state department. i would assume they would not come here unless it was cleared. >> i appreciate the gentleman's comments. are these now declassified or are you declassifying them at this hearing? is that correct? is this clear through your channels to be given here today? >> this information is available for public dissemination. >> ok. the gentleman's point of order, although noted, it is the prerogative of the executive branch to determine what is not classified. the one thing i would note, my able staff has compared the opening statement of ms. lamb. it appears her opening statement is the one that should have been given to us last night since it is the one that was given to the press.
will get you back in the game, we will give you a fair shot again. it is time to acknowledge what got us into trouble in the first place. [applause] they talk about this great recession as if it dropped out of the sky. where did it come from? as my granddaughter once said, did casper the ghost do it, pop? it came from their policies of shredding reasonable regulations on wall street, allowing banks to write their own rules, continuing a trillion-dollar tax cuts for the wealthy. that is what got us here. ladies and gentleman, they cannot take responsibility. if anybody had a doubt about what is at stake in this election, when it comes to women's rights and the supreme court, i am sure they were settled last night. congressman ryan made it clear that he and governor romney are prepared to impose their private views on everyone else. it was made clear last night that they do not believe in protecting a woman's access to health care. it was made very clear that they do not believe a woman has a right to control their own body. that is between she and her doctor. and now they say they are wil
who speaks to the u.s. ambassador on this question -- still the calculation is providing support from the united states into the rebels' hands at this time would have a very uncertain outcome. we are working very hard with the rebel forces, and clearly, as the president said, assad's days are over. they will eventually come to an end. we need to be ready to provide as much support to the moderate forces as we can in the interim. i do want to, if i can, just say one thing about the comments about iran, which is also very related to this serious issue. he does set up the strawman about the sanctions on iran and the 20 countries that have gotten off the hook. i think it is interesting to note that this is where the facts really do matter. the iran sanctions act is the critical piece of legislation that the congress passed in the 1990's to punish iran and those who support its petroleum sector. zero companies were sanctioned by the bush administration under the iran sanctions act in eight years. 0. when the president came into office, he very aggressively moved on the sanctions using exis

[video clip] >> i have heard some people say, barack, you are not as young as you used to be. where's the peck and your stop? and i say, settle down. i am trying to run a cabinet meeting. he doesn't smile when he says it though. tomorrow, it is back to campaigning. two cities and towns across our great country. under the same thing everywhere i go. -- i hear the same thing everywhere i go. and i admit sometimes it can be a grind. sometimes it feels like this race has dragged on forever. but paul ryan assured me we had
ago, i made the decision to go back and use what i know i am in a unique situation to take what i know and apply it to the education community and say we can make special education better. there are ways we can use the data we collect. i have to say i am a little proud of this, too. i am proud of standing up at this point of time. i wanted to be a politician. i did not do it because i wanted power. i did it because, after september 11, i wanted to find a way to serve my country. i was too old to join the army. i thought about applying to the fbi. i should never have a gun in my hand. [laughter] this, i can do. i can stand up and speak and contribute to the conversation. i am very proud of this and proud of you guys because everybody has talked to me and said, we can do better. we, the electorate, can increase the conversation. we can make government better. i will answer the other part of the question, something i would take back. i was offered a job at amazon. [laughter] thank you. >> 30 seconds. >> in addition to governmental experience i am proud to make it back through the recessio
. >> the thing about eisenhower is that he would never tell anybody about whether he was planned to use nuclear weapons. why is this important? when nuclear-weapons were pretty new and we threaten to use them at various stages, nobody ever knew whether he was serious or not and whether he meant that. you have to be credible. talk about loneliness command. what could be a greater decision then that that he ran the allied invasion. he is president and has an even greater level of response ability. we are building a whole arsenal of nuclear weapons. are we going to use these things are not? ike use them as a tool. he used this as a tool to avoid any war. >> evan thomas on "ike's bluff." >> on thursday, a vice president joe biden and republican vice- presidential candidates paul ryan that in their only debate at center college in kentucky. the moderator was martha radditz. this is just over 1.5 hours. ba>> good evening and welcome to the first and only vice- presidential debate of 2012. i am martha raddatz. i am honored to moderate this debate between the two men who have dedicated much of their li
be to say if you invest overseas you make profits overseas, you don't have to pay u.s. taxes but of course if you're a small business or a mom and pop business or a big business starting up here, you've got to pay even the reduced rate governor romney's talking about and it's estimated that will create 800,000 new jobs. the problem is they'll be in china or india or germany. that's not the way we are going create jobs here. the way we're going to create jobs here is not just to change our tax code but also to double our exports and we are on pace to double our exports, one of the commitments i made when i was president, that's creating tens of thousands of jobs all across the country. that's why we've kept on pushing trade deals but trade deals that make sure american workers and american businesses are getting a good deal. talked aboutey china as i already indicated. the private sector, governor romney's company invested in what were called pioneers of outsourcing. that's not my phrase. that's what reporters called it. and as far as currency manipulation, the currency's gone up 11% since
is also a line which has been relatively peaceful, and that has been the disengagement line between us and syria, which has lasted since 1974 to today. 38 years? 38 years of a line, which we have preserved the road to peace -- i think that is a big achievement for both sides. >> yes. >> hi, my name is julie. i am here with human events. thank you for your time today. i am wondering what you make of the fact that the main suspect in last year's iranian plot to assassinate the saudi ambassador to the united states pled guilty in a u.s. court yesterday. what does this maybe say about what the iranian government is willing to do? >> well, it did not need this particular case in order to prove once again that the iranians have been involved in terrorist activities against persons, against states, against countries for a long period of time. iran uses terrorism as a major tool of its international relations. it is as simple as all that. iran has plotted against others as well, individuals as well, and has also been shipping arms and equipment into areas inside the middle east. syria is one c
it to make a difference. there are situations where use of force would make the situation much worse, that we should look at other things and not even consider force. but i think some governments have made the nation that the fastest way to end the conflict in syria is to arm one side over the other. it's not going to happen. they're only going to get more people killed. in the end they need to look for political settlement. >> staying with your answer to martin's question for just a second. you know the russianian leadership, you know that the russianians are concerned that once again their support for a chapter seven solution would come back to haunt them and the region. but at the same time they are paying a considerable price in the arab world where they have diplomatic equities and interests. do you see their position changing over time? >> i hope serve concerned at the moment because it is getting worse. i did discuss this with russian leadership. and he shared with me the concerns. i have tried in geneva to push for the question of chapter seven with them. on that they maintain that th
may even be president. but for so many of us it is difficult to say goodbye. it was always comforting to know that he was around reminding us we can do better, making it seem possible we could end all wars, eliminate hunger and poverty and create a world where all god's children are respected valued and loved. in 1972 as a seventh grader in massachusetts i did what i could to elect him president of the united states which i remind you all he did win massachusetts. [applause] [applause] i was later an intern in his senate office and i had the privilege to work with the incredible staff he assembled in washington d.c. and south dakota, some of the finest people i have ever known. we weren't related it was just a co-incidence we both had the same last name. but people would tell me they were long-time supporters of my dad. and they always seemed shocked when i told them my dad owned a liquor store in massachusetts. i urged them to keep supporting him. for 35 years i have been honored to call senator mcgovern my most treasured friend and i loved him very much. he was a great man but more
it obama wins, they will pursue these. >> why not use the real one? >> the real one has already been flogged to death. >> having spent time -- sometimes the press gets it wrong in assuming that every -- anybody who gives money is a bad person. that is the assumption of the narrative. big bad money people who are out to buy the election. the reality is is that there are desperate motivations and very different types of people. they are wealthy people and their careers are over and they don't want anything back even if they get a tax break, they don't care. from policies downpour -- from a legal standpoint, how you distinguish from the outset the one guy from the other guy? . there are certain philanthropic goals. there are also real business interests and there is personal interests. as a policy matter, i would not know how to say if you check the box, i am just in it for nothing there for you can give more money to the guy who works for the payday lender. they face huge regulatory barriers. mitt romney my promise that if he is elected, that will not go into effect. >> do you want to
. you can see the numbers up there on the screen. you can also send eight weeks. we are using the hashtag #cspan 2012. what did you think of this speech? caller: i think governor romney is trying to propagate a policy that he really does not have any experience in. the things that he says are good. they sound good. but i think the american people and the people of the world are just really not into being the police of the world, as governor romney is suggesting in this speech and lately since the debate. i think, again, it sounds good, but i do not think it is good for the country. host: our next call comes from battle creek, michigan, on our independent line. caller: i am ex-military, and i fought in desert storm. yeah, i think it's a lot of words. i have heard the same song and dance before. host: you got to turn the volume down on your tv. caller: ok, sorry. host: what specifically did you think was a lot of words? caller: about how his policies would be very strict on these other countries, and now he would be able -- it just seems like the same song and dance to me, and h
